    I am having the same problem on COD4. After you come out of a game, (online) into Intermission, it comes up to a black screen. Sometimes it will come back up and I am still in lobby, other times I have to reset. I know a couple other people who are having the same problem. This didn't start happening until this last update. Any suggestions?

Freezing is due to heat issues and/or scratched discs. Mostly heat. I have seen MANY PS3 mother boards that have not had enough heatsink paste applied to the CPU or GPU by Sony to disperse the heat evenly. Also another common problem is dust build up. No matter how clean you think the inside is, there is always dust build up. The easist way to clean it is to get a can of compressed air and stick the straw into the front and side holes and let it rip. It should blow 70-80% of the dust build up out the back of the PS3. You will may even see a cloud come out as I have so many times.

Now for the COD4 online problems....the company that made the game and supports the online play (Infinity Ward) has cut back the number of servers used to support the online game play since the traffic has slowed down. Unfortuantly, I think they scaled back too much. I sold my copy of this game because it was too hard to get into a lobby and stay there for more then 3 min.

I hope this helps you both out. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Madden 09 keeps freezing on my new xbox 360


I have the same problem with most of the EA sports games, and here's the solution. Stop buying these $60 drink coasters that EA has the balls to keep dishing out to us, and they'll either go under, or spend some time on their turds for a change. Some of the things that happen in their sports titles make me wonder if the French-Canadian A-holes have ever even seen a game or a race, for that matter. Anyway, the only way to stop the freezing is to do what I do.....throw them in the trash where they belong, and stop purchasing them.

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

PS3 Freezing Mid - Game


Madden 09 itself has a lot of issues. EA is supposed to come up with a patch to fix the freezing issue for Madden 09.
There are a lot of unhappy madden 09 owners outh there.

As far as freezing on any game that sounds like a bluray diode issue or overheating issues.
keep the console in a well vented are (maybe even add a small portable fan from walmart that can help cool down your system.
